      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Brewers vs Twins

Recommended Posts

The border battle starts tomorrow - I predict 2 out of 3 for the Crew and probably the opposite later in the Dome. Not that I wouldn't like to see a sweep job on the Twinkies grin

Man. Miller park is the best. Tons of Twins fans, even the brewers fans were friendly. We had great seats. Came early and tailgated, then stayed an hour or so afterward. Twins won in extra innings!

its maddening when your team musters up 2 runs against a total scrub like McClung with his lifetime starting pitching ERA of over 6

As a Brewer's fan, I think it was a good call. Kind of lookedlike Gardenhire didn't agree though.

well If I was a Brewers fan I would have said the same thing, and I bet if the Brewers were batting, they would have got the time. crazy

I was up nort and hear the Twins won Fri and Sat, the Crew Sun. Anything exciting other than the no-time out call?

How come if this was a Packers Vikes thread the Pack fans would be rubbing in our faces the Packs Super Bowl wins.

TWINS 2 World Series WINS Brewers ZERO

What??? What did you say?? The Brewers have only been to the playoffs ONCE??? In the franchises entire existance- ONCE?? I gotta go, I cant type and laugh at the same time.

Brewers fans have more class. When I was at Miller Park I didnt see anything negative between opposing fans. AT ALL.

That is because the Twins won!!

We were there last year and two different groups of young punks were riding my 12 year old son for having a Hunter Jersey and using foul language and telling him to get the F out of their state. Isolated? Probably, but was two different groups, but were very drunk. Twins did lose that game though - so that gave them something to talk about!

If it was a Pack/Viking post the Viqueen fans would be whining as usual!

Back to the original topic, anyone going to the dome for the next Brew/Twins series?

Actually I always see more Packer fan finger pointing than Vikes fans whining. Barring having won a Super Bowl, all in all the Vikes have had a more successful franchise than Green Bay. It's a fact, sorry.

Brewers fans are a good bunch...always a drunk thats a headache, but you have that everywhere.

Harris should have got time but even if he didn't the pitching bocked! What a joke call.

Oh well, 2 of 3 is solid and hopefully they can put a string of series wins together.

Excitement Saturday - Kubel Bomb, Baker 4k for 3 outs

Yep, you'll get arseholes anywhere you go.

Side note, I don't think I've ever been to the basketball forum but I'd bet the debate between the Bucks and T-wolves fans is about like this: our team stinks worse than yours - no way, our team is horrible, you guys are just bad!

Ahha. That might be what it would be like. Except its hard pressed to find T-wolves and Bucks fans. So there is really nothing to debate. NBA is such a joke. Even the savior finals failed to live up to the hype. The Lakers were suppose to be soo good blah blah blah, when really they could have easily been swept.

Lets hope we can see a Border Battle Series! That would be some tightness!!!

You can't be serious Zamboni???? The only thing the Vikings have been more successful at, is being the first team to reach the Super Bowl 4 times and lose them all. Of course you could throw in the worst loss in NFC Championship history as well...Giants 41 Vikings 0 ...I'll give you props on the 2 World Series titles...those are bragging rights (of course we're not supposed to brag about winning championships right)?

Gardy got fined for DELAY OF GAME by the Major League after arguing the Harris non time out call. He did not leave the home plate area in a timely fashion.

What was the original topic anyway.

Badger- you better count division titles,overall the Vikings have had MORE SUCCESS. It IS a fact, look it up. Before Favre came along the Packers didn't have a single winning season in over TWENTY YEARS!!!

Vikings- 16 Division Championships

Packers- 13 Division Championships

I was sitting in the local watering hole last night watching the game. I looked at the dude next to me and commented that if the Brew's pitcher keeps pitching Joe Mauer inside like he was, Joe was going to turn on the next one and ding it.

It was a call. Great game to watch.

    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
    • Wow, someone else who actually watched the video and figured out what Williams did. Thanks @nofishfisherman.   It should never have gotten to that. The Vikings have got to keep playing to win for 4 quarters.   Playing to protect a lead can get you into trouble much faster than it's likely to help.
    • The mistake was getting there too early, clearly if he had continued with his tackle he would have been there way too early and would have an easy PI call against him.  Had he gotten a PI call then no matter what happened after that the vikings would have had a shot at kicking a field goal because a game can't end on a defensive penalty.  By avoiding the penalty he at least forced Diggs to make the catch and avoid any other tacklers.  In most cases the WR is going to catch that ball and get out of bounds right away no matter what. It was just the perfect mix of circumstances for Diggs to take it for a TD.  Had Diggs simply been facing a different direction after the catch he wouldn't have seen he had a clear path to the end zone and would have likely stepped out of bounds to stop the clock. Had Williams not taken out the other DB he may have been in position to make a tackle or at least be close enough to perhaps make Diggs think the best option is to run out of bounds instead of risk getting tackled in bounds.    What I found more puzzling is the overall defense from the Saints.  I've seen it broken down a few times and they had several players guarding against short passes to the middle of the field.  That vikings had no time outs and needed at least 20 yards, the Saints should have been inviting them to through short into the middle of the field not actively trying to take it away.  It appeared the entire play was a complete mental breakdown by the Saints.  It will go down as a great play by the Vikings, and it was, but it was made possible by some pretty big mistakes by the Saints defensive play calling and a single mental breakdown by Williams. 
    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
